1:01 am
g7 summit in canada stop it president trump says that he will not endorse thejoint president trump says that he will not endorse the joint communique which was issued after the summit and ina which was issued after the summit and in a tweety said that his decision was in a response to comments made by the canadian prime minister just comments made by the canadian prime ministerjust in trudeau. he accused him of making false statements and said that canada charging massive ta riffs said that canada charging massive tariffs to us farmers, workers and companies. he went on to say that justin trudeau had been meek and mild during their meetings, but had later described us tariffs as insulting. let's get the latest.
1:02 am
i apologise for dragging you out. what is going on, what happened? the president, just a a few moments after the communique was released, said a tweet saying that the us would not be endorsing it. he cited the statement from justin trudeau, saying it was full of faults with. justin trudeau was talking about the ta riffs justin trudeau was talking about the tariffs the us imposed on steel and aluminium, trudeau said he was ready to go forward with reactions and that he found those insulting because the us and canada had always been allies. the idea that the us needed paris under the guise of national security, which is how the white house is imposing them, was insulting to the canadian people. mr trump took issue with that and said he was not repaired to endorse the communique. earlier on we suggested
1:03 am
that progress had been made? we went into this matter and summit thinking it would be very contentious, very awkward. then with the news that there was going to be a communique and the us was going to be a part of it, we felt that 0k, and the us was going to be a part of it, we felt that ok, maybe they were able to paper over things and come to an agreement. this takes us back to an agreement. this takes us back to where we were in the state of play last week when we were looking at quite tense relations between the us and canada and its european allies. it really takes us back to square allies. it really takes us back to square one allies. it really takes us back to square one with the summit. would it effect to say it or am i being premature to say that a trade war is inevitable? it will take time to see. trade wars are hard to identify, but it depends on how the us goes forward, whether it tries to impose further tariffs are certainly
1:04 am
the white house says the idea of possibly imposing tariffs on cars and that will up the anti—. it will be interesting to see what the white house's next move is to pick something i have been interested in, there was a group of people who ganged up against president trump. do you think this is the kind of reaction to that? being told how he should behave on the international stage? certainly we have seen some incredible photos coming out of the summit. there was a factor going around of angela merkel standing over a table, seemingly having tough words having tough words of the province —— with the president. chinderah they around, not looking like eight friendly conversation. the president certainly looks at media outlets and i am sure that was
1:05 am
in consideration. he has also cited justin trudeau and his comments at the end of the summit, saying they we re the end of the summit, saying they were full of falsehoods. i think this is partly personal between trudeau and trump because trump has repeatedly been tweaking, calling out trudeau for the past couple of days. thank you. professorjohn kirton is director of the g7 research group at the munk school of global affairs at the university of toronto. he's at the g7 summit in quebec city. thank you so much to joining thank you so much tojoining us. you we re thank you so much tojoining us. you were already at this event, we haven't dragged you out from your martinis. tell us, what happened?” think that the key thing was that the president, once he left, the very unifying dynamic of the summit.
1:06 am
he then went back home and a loan with only his closest advisers by his side who couldn't say no to his emotional enrages as the night goes on and he reaches for his iphone to send out a tweet. so, locked and loaded, fire and fury. we are seeing a co nsta nt strea m loaded, fire and fury. we are seeing a constant stream of that and this is very much in that tradition. perhaps this is incited by looking at the tv and singing justin trudeau as the centre of global attention, the centre of global governance, a position that donald trump had had before he left. and without even thinking of where he is going to land, why with kim jong—un sign an agreement with donald trump if he knows that donald trump could
1:07 am
unilaterally repudiate it on the plane home from singapore. so clearly, it was an instant reaction toa clearly, it was an instant reaction to a really very small set of things, if you take seriously any of the words in trump's tweet. 200% ta riffs the words in trump's tweet. 200% tariffs on dairy products. that is a very interesting point considering he is going on a diplomatic mission at the moment. this is what i am curious about. this tweet went out about an hour ago and i am looking at, we have written before we came on air, talking about this that there were perhaps disagreements but by and large everybody signed up to the communique, you can consider it a su ccess the communique, you can consider it a success and all of a sudden everything has changed. it was a summit of very significant success in substance and public appearance because justin trudeau's in substance and public appearance becausejustin trudeau's opening line at his news conference was" i
1:08 am
announced that there is a consensus communique" and of course, that is the one thing that trump immediately destroyed. if it is all about the tv presentation in the image, in trump's mind as it often is, then yeah, it is a failure as a summit in terms of its public sanitation, the message it sends to the rest of the world. but we still don't know if trump is going to order at every official in the us government to not implement any of the substantial agreements and, back to north korea, the most unifying element of the summit was that all the g7 leaders backed president trump as their leader on his way to singapore, all wa nted leader on his way to singapore, all wanted trump's core position, complete, irreversible, verifiable
1:09 am
agreement with north korea, so if trump is not just agreement with north korea, so if trump is notjust going to blow justin trudeau's appearance of success out of the water, but blow every other g7 leader who signed the communique out of the public appearance as well. all of those leaders that were there, they heard every word, they knew whatjustin said and justin said nothing in his news c0 nfe re nce said and justin said nothing in his news conference that he hadn't said before in public, in private, at home and indeed in some cases, at the g7 summit itself. so do you think him describing justin trudeau as meek and mild during the meetings and then suddenly having the guts to speak out after he had left, do you think that is the sort of, a bit of a slight on the prime minister? sure. and president trump has previously done the ten in mono
1:10 am
thing, my handshake is stronger than yours. justin was indeed conciliatory, as respectful as he could be. but still on the trade stuff, very firm, very clear and on the key issues, say a sunset clause in nafta. so i think it is notjust the particular tone or approach of justin at the summit or the words he used in his concluding news conference, i think it is just the simple fact that he was at the centre of global attention and president trump no longer was. do you think it was right forjustin trudeau to talk that us tariffs once again after this communique had been released? everybody again after this communique had been released ? everybody is again after this communique had been released? everybody is shaking hands and happy, why drudge of those things again? it was president trump who repeatedly made into and during
1:11 am
the g7 summit, these relatively small tariffs on aluminium and steel a much larger issue then they should have been and were designed to be. so prime minister apra to really did have to state his position and the word insulting was not about the tariffs, not about president trump, it was a bout the rationale behind them, the national security rationale and in the concluding news conference, trudeau emphasised that we fought with the united states in the first world war, the second world war, the korean war and many since then, so it isjust inconceivable that canada is any kind of a national security threat to the united date and insulting to the people of canada —— united states. and insulting to the people of canada to infer that it was.”
1:12 am
know that in a few of those was the canadians showed up before the americans it did. i am just wondering about this, looking at the tweets. it says the tariffs on us automobiles flooding the market, of course many companies have plants in canada, if tariffs are imposed on imported vehicles, that would be very damaging to both parties to both the american consumers and canadian manufacturers. indeed. but who will get hit most and first is the us automotive industry because ina the us automotive industry because in a world ofjust in time inventory, they need their parts from the canadian plants and if they don't get them the next day, they cannot produce. and since then market is much bigger, their plants and dealerships are much bigger, ten times the size of canada as a ballpark, they get hit first and
1:13 am
president trump doesn't seem to understand the reality. we no longer trade things with the united states, we make things together and the automotive industry was the pioneer of that, with the auto pact of 1965, it isa of that, with the auto pact of 1965, it is a seamless web and you cannot simply undo it by slapping on ta riffs of simply undo it by slapping on tariffs of an aluminium steel sought. which is why they are so confusing, very often one automobile will cross the border several times before it ends up in the hands of the consumers. how do you assess the g7 summit from before president trump tweeted until now? has your assessment changed ? trump tweeted until now? has your assessment changed? certainly in substance, it remains a summit of significant success of. the prime minister had put gender at the
1:14 am
centre and it did raise $3.8 billion to educate young girls in conflict situations following in the footsteps of a great initiative by the united kingdom at the then g8 summit, raised another $3 billion package with the americans participating for women's economic empowerment through our development finance institutions working with the. and the united kingdom had a very important leadership role to play. a zero plastics charter, five countries have signed on, coastal cleanup for our oceans. now on some of those, the united states had already not chipped in with its money, but what was recorded in a consensus communique, it gave them a free press, accurately recorded,
1:15 am
where who agreed and where they didn't. so, we'll have to wait and see, as i have said, if president trump then orders everybody in the us government not to do what had just been agreed, even when it is in the most immediate and direct interest of the united states. just a couple of days before he came here, president trump went out of his way to go to a big public hesitation at the federal environment emergency management agency to show how the us was prepared for the next hurricane season that had begun a couple of days before and low and behold, after an absence on the tv screens ofa after an absence on the tv screens of a month, the first lady appeared by his side. so he knows that building coastal resilience in florida, in louisiana, in texas,
1:16 am
hurricane marina and katrina is vital to maintaining that part of this political base as the mid—term elections approach on november six. so it would be irrational in the extreme if a us president walk out ofa extreme if a us president walk out of a collective approach to try and build that coastal resilience at such an enormous, immediate, partisan political cost. thank you very much for your insight. and of course, is that story develops will bring you more. and fry comprehensive analysis of the g7 and the final communique which has now been rejected by donald trump, you can go to the bbc website, where you can go to the bbc website, where you will also find background information on president trump's tariff information on president trump's ta riff puzzles information on president trump's tariff puzzles and a feature on protectionism. —— proposals. stay
